Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Many extreme records are revealed in this book filled with world records. It is one book in "The Remarkable...Revealed" series. Readers can pick and choose which pages to read to gather information for reports or just to learn new things. The format includes interesting, unusual and gross photos, one of which shows a man eating a handful of wiggly worms. It also is set up with many short sections on each page. Some fascinating excerpts include one about a Lego aircraft carrier made from 300,000 Legos reaching almost 15 ft. long, a bride who wore a wedding dress that weighed 392 lbs., and a ten-year old girl who found out when she was only two that she could hypnotize lizards. While the text is most readable for ages 9 and up, younger children will readily pick up the book to scan the pictures and facts. The popular Ripley's books will grab the attention of even the most reluctant readers. The books may be used to encourage research for discovering other weird and wonderful facts. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
